bexb-d, 10 October 2012:
Went here on Friday night, and as promised by many friends much of the food was good. However, the long black human hair in the salad was not so good, nor was the manner in which the owner or manger dealt with the situation. After rather publicly accusing us of introducing Mr Hair to Mr Salad ourselves, he grudgingly offered only to deduct the price of the salad from the bill, and when we informed him that seemed a little under generous, he threw us out. Oh well…
I went to the Evin Cafe Bar once and ok they give you free WI-FI but so does every half decent place nowadays. Honestly speaking it's not much to look at that's why everything is dirt cheap not only that I had a hot chocolate with cream and even that wasnt at starbucks or costa coffee level. So hey, if your looking for a cheap meal to fill your stomach and nothing else go to Evin otherwise dont bother coz u can't even have a decent cup of coffee!
I think Dalston is amazing for food. There's nothing flashy, I doubt there's too much organic, fairtrade or rare breed, but if when it comes to multiculturalism few places can beat it. You can eat food from so many different countries and it's nearly always cheap.
One little gem is Evin Cafe, not too far up from Dalston Kingsland train station. Every Saturday and Sunday morning two ladies sit in the front window preparing the most Gözlemedelectable filled flatbreads called gözleme. One lady fills and stuffs and the other cooks them on a domed griddled, which Google has just told me is called a sac.
There's two filling choices, a slightly spiced and minty mashed potato and a quite fiery spinach. Both a delight, the bread itself getting towards wood fired pizza in its taste, charred in spots and soft in texture. All this for £1.50 each. If you ever pass by I recommend you pop in and get one.
The evening food is also very nice too (although not my favourite in the area), serving up the usual grilled meats and breads along with a wide selection of starters and other mains.
There are some photos on my blog here:
This place is my favourite turkish restaurant, I’ve been living in Hackney for 4 years so there are plenty to choose from!
The halloumi is gorgeous, and their simple red lentil soup, that is £1.50 a bowl is great. The staff are attentive and there are always plenty of them.
I can’t fault this place.
It's one of the most sympathic places in the area.
You can go anytime of the day, the staff is always happy to
receive you and you can use WI-FI for free.
Every morning, in the window, you can see the cook preparing fresh food. Breakfast are until 17H.I love their toast with cheese and beans and their hot chocolate is yummy and it's really cheap.
You've got traditional turkish food and music too. At night you can come with all your friends as they have a big room downstairs for parties or whatever.
If you want to spend less for tasty food, you'll be pleased.
